  1. This Kindle Short by Frank Gilroy has drama, humor, orgiastic sex and then at his touch, EXPLOSION , pathos and above all poignancy than a big brick of a novel five times its length, and Lake, I ll go out on a limb here, stands beside Our Town in its perception and in the way it succeeds in evoking another time, a different place.It s a story of a New Jersey summer community on the shores of a lake, a fully realized anecdotal account that spans a generation beginning in the 1920s In a relatively [...]


  2. Frank D Gilroy s Lake is a wonderful tale of a New Jersey vacation community at a lake, and spans 25 years from the 1920 s through World War II It is written in a series of vignettes which are short, and tell about a lake resident or something that happens, or a short piece where one of the summer residents speaks The lake community has no water in the winter because the Property Owners Association doesn t want just anyone living there year round.The Kindle Single follows the residents who are t [...]


  3. This is historical fiction set in the years before WWII at a lake in New Jersey that has a summer community The story is told in many brief vignettes that average about a page in length The writing style is spare and evocative, almost like poetry I truly enjoyed the book possibly because I live on a lake with a similar history.


  4. What a treat that Mr Gilroy has written this marvelous Single Reminiscent in parts of Spoon River, Thurber, Wilder, Lewisthis fictional chronicle of three decades in the lives of the seasonal, and year round, inhabitants of the Lake village, leading up to WWII, captivated me at once Reading so many perspectives from the various townspeople produced a rich tapestry, full of insights on class divisions, human nature, first love, weekend dances, war and loss I just learned that Mr Gilroy, well into [...]


  5. I was blown away as I read this story It is beautifully written, and truly a privilege to read It is a story which is superbly built, vignette by vignette, so the whole town is ultimately revealed in all its secrets and prejudices and private and moral failings I wept at the end, for the humanity that is revealed for all that is now gone for all that happens to us in life.I am sixty years old, and although an Australian, recognise so much of what is recounted in Lake how much has been lost how p [...]


  6. The book was for light reading, not much in the way of deep thoughts, just a story about social status differences that exist around a popular summer getaway which is in decline I got the impression that the elite were trapped into maintaining images of bygone years and customs Been there and done that but kind of liked being reminded of from what I escaped.


  7. I really enjoyed reading this unusual but absorbing book Set over time it let s you look in on the residents and visitors to the lake in the title You are left to join the dots of the meaning of each encounter yourself which I loved This is not for people who like to be spoon fed the plot It leaves you to make up your own mind as to how to take events which I found very refreshing Highly recommend you give it a try.
